Lurker at the Threshold (herald)
Lurker at the Threshold – The All-in-One and One-in-All
When the Lurker at the Threshold is the Herald, at the start of the game, shuffle the Reckoning deck and place it by the Herald sheet. Then place the Dark Pact cards near the Herald sheet and create a pool of Power tokens.
Rites of Magick
Whenever an investigator casts a Spell, he may accept the Lurker at the Threshold's aid. If he does so, he reduces the Sanity cost of the Spell to 0 and automatically passes the Spell check, but must immediately take a Blood Pact, Soul Pact, or Bound Ally card and follow its instructions. He must then draw and resolve a Reckoning card. (Note: an investigator may never have more than one of each kind of Dark Pact and may not accept the Lurker at the Threshold's aid if he already has one of each kind of Dark Pact.)
At the start of any turn, an investigator may make a pact with the Lurker at the Threshold. If he does so, he takes a Blood Pact, Soul Pact, or Bound Ally card and follow its instructions. An investigator may take more than one type of Dark Pact card on his turn, but may never have more then one of each type of Dark Pact. (Note: do not draw and resolve a Reckoning card when you take a Dark Pact card at the start of a turn.)
